A BODYBUILDER fell to his death trying to climb in through his girlfriend’s window, an inquest heard.

Davey Fallon, aged 20, of Park Road South, Newton-le-Willows, died from serious head injuries after falling from the second floor of partner Leanne Chadwick’s home on Larkspur Grove, Saxon Park, Warrington.

Neighbours reported seeing him climb on a wheelie bin, and then onto the roof of a porch to reach the bedroom window in the early hours of July 7 last year.

A Cheshire Police officer and paramedics tried to save him after he fell and hit the pavement outside the property. He died at Warrington Hospital.

The death of Mr Fallon, who trained at Hard Labour Gym on Grange Avenue, Woolston, was ruled as misadventure at Warrington Coroner’s Court on Tuesday.

He had been enjoying a day out with Ms Chadwick and her friends at the Glastonferry festival at Fiddlers Ferry on July 6.

The inquest heard they had lived together for around a year, but a row saw her leave without him at about 10.30pm.

Friends, who told the inquest Mr Fallon was “very drunk”, advised him to go to his mother’s in Newton-le-Willows.

After going to bed Ms Chadwick was woken by banging outside.

She said: “As I looked towards the window I saw a white vest and said what are you doing? Then he just went. One minute he was there and the next he wasn’t.”

A toxicology report showed traces of cocaine in his system at the time of death, although Ms Chadwick said he was not a regular user.

Dr Alan Moore, coroner for Cheshire, agreed the drug use was “out of character”, but said its effects were likely to have played a role in his death.

He said: “One of the effects of cocaine is increasing confidence. One of the others is increasing risk taking. We know that Davey climbs onto the roof to get to the window. That was clearly a risk.”

Dad David Fallon said Davey "lived life to the full".

Ms Chadwick said she loved how he treated her and her son, and they had a “happy relationship”.
